Cabbages & Kings: An open letter to my fellow Parsis 21.10.2017
"You succumbed to his persistence Spent time you had to waste — Victim to his insistence — But one can"t fault his taste..." From Aas Paas Rhymes by Bachchoo My Dear Bawajis and Banuon, Wallas and Wallis, Four score and seven years ago... no, sorry, 1,200 years ago, our ancestors, landed in Sanjan, Gujarat, fleeing the harshness of the Arab conquest of Persia. There is some story about the king of the territory demonstrating the lack of space in his kingdom by calling for a brimful cup of milk. Then the Zoroastrian leader of the boat-people called for a lime and squeezed it into the milk — and lo and behold the milk curdled, as milk must, and became yoghurt, causing the king to repent and say: "We need a bit of yoghurt, you are welcome." I have always thought this story somewhat improbable. Why would the king think that a boatload of immigrants would flood his schools with kids and his National Health Service hospitals with their halt and lame? Besides, ...

Chennai: Fatal end to bus crew working over time 21.10.2017
CHENNAI: The eight deceased employees of the state transport corporation who were crushed to death after the roof of the Porayur bus stand crashed had two things in common — to help the passengers reach their native places on time to celebrate Deepavali and to sacrifice their celebrations due to the recent circular by the state department insisting the crew not to take leave from October 15-20.  As the availability of crew is limited, the transport minister announced recently that no driver or conductor can take a break from work during the festival operations. That is the reason; about 45 people were sleeping in the room during the disaster. If not, half of them would have gone home and at least a couple of people of the eight transport workers would have been alive, disclosed state transport employees. This unveils the negligence of the department each year by putting them in strenuous situations and failing to maintain the structures that are over four decades old. Sources from the ...

Tamil Nadu: Dilapidated structures leave bus crew worried 21.10.2017
CHENNAI: The roof collapse of Porayur depot only marks the beginning of many more accidents to come in the future. Numerous bus terminals in Chennai that are built way back in the 1970s are only repainted and no actual repair works are undertaken, say department sources. "The canteen at the Chromepet bus terminus is in a dilapidated condition and numerous appeals to the department have gone in vain. Similarly, in Ennore the room meant for conductors to sign attendance and show the accounts is in a pathetic condition," rued a driver at the Chromepet bus depot. He further added during the monsoon, rainwater enters inside the buildings, making the structures very weak. Similar is the plight of Vadapalani bus terminus where the tank above the washroom is about to crash. Already, the crew at the depot complains about irregular water supply and this would only worsen the condition. According to the employees, T Nagar bus stand is only being re-painted by the department to show that it is in a good ...
